ALEX HEAD from Social Pantry has written a wonderful Autumnul blog post on ChicP... with a delicious recipe from us too!
There’s a lot to be said for a good dip; they’re a delicious way to jazz up a dull desk lunch and can bring dinner parties to life when paired with a fresh crudités. As much as I try to make everything from scratch, there are some fantastic packaged dips on the market at the moment and one of my favourites is London-based ChicP.
Tired of bland, unoriginal supermarket versions, ChicP founder Hannah set about creating dips from surplus vegetables otherwise destined for the bin. The colourful range (all made using a base of chickpeas) includes Beetroot & Horseradish, Herby Hummus and Carrot & Ginger.
Hannah has created this quick, tasty falafel recipe using the best-selling Carrot, Ginger & Turmeric dip as the key ingredient – perfect in Autumn to enjoy with salads, add to hearty soups or wraps or to eat with a warm chicken dish. Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic diets for centuries to boost the immune system and help prevent disease – this dish is great to give your immune system a boost when the weather dips low. Enjoy!
